Robin van Persie says his decision to leave Arsenal and join Manchester United last summer can no longer be questioned as he prepares to lift the Premier League title this weekend.

Van Persie recently sealed United's 20th league title with a hat-trick against Aston Villa and the Red Devils will lift the trophy after this weekend's game at home to Swansea.

Speaking of his £24million move to Old Trafford, the Netherlands international told United Review: "I wouldn't have moved if I'd had doubts. Instead, from day one I was almost certain we would win trophies - not in a couple of years but this year.

"I saw the players in training. I saw the way they behaved, the way they lived, their mentality, the way the staff worked, the way the manager and the staff acted.

"When all those elements combine you end up with a team of champions. It also helps when you have so many players who know how to win.

"There were some great pictures taken after the Aston Villa game, but there was one thing missing from them all; the trophy. That's the picture that will be framed in my house; me, lifting the Barclays Premier League trophy. I can't wait for that moment."

Van Persie earlier this week revealed he plans to stick with the No.20 shirt for next season.
